    Default Charlize Theron likens press intrusion to rape

    The Oscar-winning actor Charlize Theron has compared press intrusioninto her life to rape.


    The star, who is in the UK to promote the film A Million Ways To Die In The West, made the comments when she was asked by Sky News if she ever Googled herself.


    She said: "I don't do that, so that's my saving grace. When you start living in that world, and doing that, you start I guess feeling raped."


    Asked if she felt that strongly about the issue, Theron said: "Well, you know when it comes to your son and your private life. Maybe that's just me. Some people might relish all that stuff but there are certain things in my life that I think of as very sacred and I am very protective over them.


    "I don't always win that war but as long as I don't have to see that stuff or read that stuff or hear that stuff then I can live with my head in a clear space, which is probably a lot healthier than living in that dark room."


    In the same interview, the South African-born actor said: "My job has made my life incredibly blessed and good and I am very grateful for that, but it does not mean that every aspect of my life all of a sudden becomes fodder for an article."


    Theron, who won a best actress Oscar in 2003 for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos, came under fire online for her comments.


    One Twitter user said: "She should try telling that to a real rape victim," and another said: "How stupid to comment about press intrusion the same as being raped. Makes my blood boil!!"


    Twilight star Kristen Stewart apologised after making similar remarks in 2010 during an interview with Elle magazine.

    For all we know she might have actually been raped. She's seen her share of male violence anyhow.

    I highly doubt she'd come out with that crap if she'd actually been raped.

    She definitely used the wrong word although I do understand what she means and the feeling she is trying to convey by using the word. But again, wrong word.
    We've all made that mistake.
    I do, however, agree with ----> "My job has made my life incredibly blessed and good and I am very grateful for that, but it does not mean that every aspect of my life all of a sudden becomes fodder for an article.

    If a celeb chooses to enclose details of their lives then that's their choice. It shouldn't be "taken" by the greedy paparazzi.

    I usually like her, but what an ignorant statement. Poor her. Show some damn common decency and compassion for others. How can you even compare the two?? I think dating Penn is starting to rub off on her.

    ^ I think she's always been like this, personally. I mean, just choosing Sean in the first place says a lot about her to me.

    I can't believe a woman from South Africa would say such a stupid thing.

    Yeah, perhaps "violated" would have been a better term.

    These celebs really need to get their heads out of their asses and back into the real world so they can see how absolutely stupid they sound. First war, then rape...all these proclamations of what feminism is, what a great mother is or isn't. Just STFU already.

    You know what feels like rape? Rape. Please don't use that analogy for anything else.
